Creating a well-balanced, natural skin care routine for your specific needs can be challenging, but you can rest assured knowing that all natural and vegan products can help. These products tend to be more gentle on the skin. As a result, you are less likely to experience any negative side effects while using them, such as redness, irritation and dry patches. Create your perfect natural skin care routine with these tips straight from the pros.

 

Look for the Certified Label

When a product is certified vegan and organic, it means that it has undergone strict testing and follows guidelines to ensure quality. Certified products are guaranteed to be free of harmful and animal derived ingredients. In addition to this, the cruelty-free logo is worth looking out for as well. It means that a product does not participate in animal testing, so you can enjoy a guilt-free purchase.

Start with a Gentle Cleanser

A gentle cleanser designed for daily use is the foundation of healthy, natural skin care. Many all-natural vegan skincare brands rely on tea tree oil, eucalyptus oil, and other essential oils as the main ingredient for cleansing the skin. These products are ideal for most skin types, however, individuals with dry or sensitive skin may be better off sticking with a moisturizing cleanser infused with coconut oil, Shea butter or cocoa butter. As a general rule of thumb, you should aim to wash your face first thing in the morning and before bed.

Try Toner

Toner is a wonderful addition to any balanced skincare routine because it can minimize the appearance of pores, even out your skin tone and may even help to treat breakouts. Best of all, it is easy to find all natural and vegan toners. Witch hazel is a cult classic that has been used for decades. It is also ideal for all skin types. Toner should be applied to slightly damp skin after you have finished washing your face. Apply it with a cotton ball or facial towel for the best results.

 

Use SPF Moisturizer

The sun can wreak havoc on your skin. UV exposure is linked to signs of premature aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, and rough texture as well as certain types of cancer. However, you can fight back by using a daily facial moisturizer that is infused with a high SPF content. Apply it before heading outdoors every day for the best results. To protect your skin even more from sun damage, wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses while you are out and about. These daily habits can add up over time and reduce your risk of sun damage.

Use Masks Regularly

Vegan masks such as activated charcoal, clay, and peel-off varieties are a great way to relax while enjoying skin care benefits such as smaller pores, less redness and a more even tone. However, use them according to a regular schedule for the best results. Use them once or twice a week to start. Pick a day and time that you can stick with so you do not forget. By sticking with your routine, you will enjoy the full benefits of the masks and see more noticeable results.

 

Try Natural Skin Care Remedies

The most popular products for vegan and natural skin care are apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, and essential oils. Apple cider vinegar is an excellent skin purifier. Use it alone or add to masks to boost your results. Coconut oil, on the other hand, has deep moisturizing properties and can restore elasticity to dry and cracked skin.

Finally, essential oils are worth learning more about. They are used for a variety of different things — such as being mixed with your current skincare products or applied topically to treat breakouts and blackheads. These options are ideal for anyone seeking to reduce their overall skincare costs as well since they are so affordable.

Selecting natural and vegan skincare products is a great way to avoid harsh and potentially harmful chemicals in traditional products. It is ideal for all skin types, but may especially benefit sensitive skin. Create your own personalized skincare routine by following these pro tips today!
